11 in 11 - Avid Chronic Racing Season Preview
Today we preview Avid Chronic Racing, and how they look heading into the 2016 Formula SimRacing Season
Now entering its 3rd year under its current guise, Avid Chronic Racing both on and off track is going from strength to strength. Michi Hoyer this year is promoted to Team Principle, and will be overseeing the efforts of his 2 drivers for 2016, John-Eric Saxen and Nikodem Wisniewski
John-Eric has years of FSR experience, Avid Chronic Racing's acquisition of him in 2014 has been crucial to their building process, JES is well known and well like by the entire community, drove for numerous teams over the years, but 1 thing still eludes him in Formula Simracing, a World Championship race win. Will 2016 finally be the year John-Eric gets the monkey off his back?
Nikodem Wisniewski moves up to World Championship level for 2016, having raced in PRO last season. The GT Academy finalist has the pace to compete at Formula Simracing's top level, and is looking forward to the challenge ahead.
The team on paper has one of Formula SimRacing's strongest units, the building process that has transpired over the last 2 years has moved in the right direction, they have surrounded themselves with the tools and people they require for success to be possible, the question now becomes, will 2016 live up to the hype for Avid Chronic Racing.

We had the chance to catch up with Nikodem and asked him on his thoughts and feelings heading into the 2016 season.
"I'm really looking forward to WC season. It will be my first one in highest division, so I would like to send many thanks to my team - ACR. They have belief that I'll be proper man to racing in WC, although I didn't show much in last season. Unfortunately I couldn't driven all season, because my univeristy, because holiday job etc. Anyway, now I'm focused to do my best, and you can expect that I will not be a backmarker.
I was lucky that I could get some experience in real racing car on stunning Yas Marina Circuit. That helps me with adjusting my ffb and all pedals or wheel settings. I also have changed my old DFGT for a brand new T300 with T3PA PRO pedals. If you think that difference between that wheels is like betweeen Kamaz and GT-R, then you are right. Finally I don't need to worry about my brake pedal (last set was like 0-50-100 % and nothing between them). In VEC me and Kuba are going for championship, We have similar pace as always, so based on our experience I can say, that I'm looking forward to be very close to him also in FSR. Fasten your belts!"
Join us tomorrow for our next in the 11 in 11 series, when we will be taking a look at Twister Racing.
